Sailing the Draken Harald Through the Labrador Sea

Voluntary Avoidance Area: October 15 to mid-November

Lake Onalaska Voluntary Waterfowl Avoidance Area (Navigation Pool 7)

Established in 1986, the 3,356-acre avoidance area covers a portion of the lake used by large numbers of migrating waterfowl, including canvasbacks. Dates of the program are Oct. 15, through mid-November. The boundaries of the Voluntary Avoidance Area are marked with nearly 50 white buoys. All boaters using Lake Onalaska for fishing, hunting, sailing, or other activities are asked to detour around the area marked with buoys to prevent unnecessary disturbance to waterfowl.

Do your best to avoid lifting birds for the rest of the year. Please help the Fish and Wildlife Service preserve this resource.Canvasbacks peak around Oct. 22 and are easily lifted. Please avoid them, even if they are outside of the Avoidance Area.
